How Medicaid Would Be Affected by TrumpCare

Arguably one of the biggest pieces of the health reform puzzle is what to do with the Medicaid program as the American Healthcare Act (AHCA) moves forward in the U.S. Senate.  This program is responsible for helping millions get access to healthcare.  

America’s Healthcare Challenge, a radio program produced by E.D. Bellis addressed this topic in one of our recent episodes.

By listening to this highly informative program you will gain the answers to the following:

  • How large is the Medicaid program?
  • Fact or fiction: “Medicaid is Broken”
  • What are some states doing with their Medicaid program?

You will also find out why was there such a push to Repeal and Replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and develop an understanding of why Medicaid expansion was the right venue to provide coverage for this population segment.

Want to find out the public’s reaction to the AHCA House bill who are the real  “winners and losers” in the health care reform battle as well as why the importance of the CBO “scoring” of the AHCA Bill?

This episode addresses all of these and much more.
